Mia Dolcea Moscato d'Asti

The first time I went wine tasting with my husband, my husband didn't like wine at all.  The sommelier started out convinced she could help him discover a wine that he liked, but in the end, she gave up.  He wanted it to taste like grape juice.  

Several wine tastings later, we discovered that my husband likes wine that is very sweet.  Gewurztraminer was probably the first type of wine that he didn't want to spit out.  It's a little too sweet for me though.

I mainly like white wine, but I like a lot more variety than my husband.  I enjoy Chardonnay, Rose, and sparkling wine.  We do wine tastings at Total Wine about once a month, and there have even been a few reds that we both really liked.  

When we're looking for a bottle of wine to share with dinner, we usually play it safe by buying a wine that's sweet but not too sweet for me, and Moscato is always the perfect choice.  We tend to prefer Italian Moscato, and our current favorite is Mia Dolcea Moscato d'Asti.  It has a deliciously sweet flavor that would make it a great dessert wine, but a couple days ago, we enjoyed it with pizza. 

If you're looking for a sweet, easy to drink wine, you can't go wrong with Mia Dolcea!

Happy drinking!
